The internet has stolen our privacy and our freedom!
TwonkyMedia and Netgear EVA700 Digital Entertainer worked perfectly for years, but the new software isn’t valid with OS X 10.6.8. Installing mediabrowser. tv today was a horror of creating an account I wasn't allowed to use. The app won't start. I regret signing up. They have our Google address. I started a new directory with nervous paranoia of scrutiny. My Mac Pro was forced to reboot several times, and my content is being scrutinised beyond my control. I hate the internet now. Media Browser says I can’t use it because another user is connected. I created one username and password for my email address.
Beyond this issue, I believe my life is crippled by my own email address being swamped with messages, made worse by extra, alternative Google email addresses I can't access to close. I regret my landline and mobile number. I feel so scrutinised and under the control of authority. I have lost control utterly. Mike Bird I understand your distress. This is a sort of existential panic triggered by the sense that technology is a constantly rising tide and we are getting too old to keep treading water. But the truth is that Media Browser isn’t scrutinising or controlling you. It’s just an app that acts as a server for your local media and internet streaming services, which you access through a browser on your Mac or a mobile device. Or don’t, in your case, since you’ve got in a tangle with your account. I suggest asking its customer support if the account can be deleted to let you start afresh.
Likewise, follow the forgotten password procedure to recover Gmail addresses, or abandon those you aren’t using – Gmail addresses don’t cost you anything.
There are certainly valid concerns about online privacy, and a cautious attitude to what you share online is sensible. But when you start regretting your mobile phone and even your landline, it’s a sure sign sensible caution has become an unhealthy paranoia.
Even if you forget your password, you can nearly always get back into your email account.
